    Go ABC!

    I liked “The Neighbors” in the beginning, and I really want to like it now. But, there isn’t much of outter space aliens stuff going on anymore. The aliens couple next door has turned into another regular Earth-family, even throwing in common cliches and lingo. Reminds me of that failed “comedy” a few years ago, “The Cavemen”, where the cavemen were just regular Joes, instead of cavemen.

    I didn’t watch “20/20″ (I was watching the NBC Kennedy special), but I wonder if “20/20″ may have had a segment (or the entire hour) devoted to the Kennedy assassination as well.

    @Joseph, I watched 20/20 after Shark Tank it was a show focused on scams like how bartenders scam you.
    Yay for Shark Tank! Mark Cuban= Ratings

  • JR35

    Cuban’s on every week- the presence of both ladies has shown to spark a ratings bump, though. :)

    Jiji Moran, I agree with you 100% about “The Neighbors.” The focus has totally changed. It reminds me more of a forgettable sitcom, like “According to Jim,” or “Yes, Dear.” I wonder who insisted on these changes. .
